London-based designer Paul Blease launched the collection under the Noble & Wood label at Maison & Objet in Paris earlier this month, and is showing it at designjunction this week as part of the London Design Festival.

"Crafted modernism is our design philosophy, which explores the qualities of traditional craft techniques and combines them with modern manufacturing technology," Paul Blease told Dezeen.

The collection includes a console designed in collaboration with Gautier Pelegrin that leans against the wall and incorporates an additional smaller shelf to help organise everyday clutter.

The magazine holder is made from a solid wedge of Carrera marble, American walnut or ash, with leather pouches slung over the top.

The three legs of the Domino stool are fixed together by a horizontal brass bar and a removable felt pad adds extra comfort on the seat.

A solid turned-wood stool has a felt pad that can be switched for a metal surface to transform it into a side table.

Wall hooks in two diameters are available in copper or anodised aluminium finishes with a range of coloured leather fronts.

A leather strap used to suspend the Loop mirror from its wall-mounted hook fits snugly into a groove that runs around the wooden frame.

    Am I missing something, or is that mirror is awfully close to Lukas Peet’s mirror/clock design? The wall hooks aren’t that far from Muuto’s design, either.

    • Lukas Peet

      Thanks Saukko.

    • James Roth

      Or the one Jacques Adnet designed 60 years ago. I like this variation on a worthy theme.

      Yes, the collection definitely rings quite a few bells.
